New Georgia QB ready for January arrival

12/26/2011

Mark Richt told reporters back in June that he did not expect to take a quarterback in the 2012 signing class. But college football has few absolutes and recruiting has even fewer. Fast forward six months to January and Richt will welcome to Athens quarterback Faton Bauta (Palm Beach Gardens, Fla./Dwyer), who will enroll at Georgia before the rest of the 2012 class has even signed.

"January 4 is the day, and I have orientation the next day,” Bauta said. “I am rooming with Keith Marshall and two other guys, but I am not sure who they are yet. I think they are sophomores on the team. I am excited to room with Marshall since he is such a great player.”

And what is the one thing Bauta has to make sure he packs for the move to college? Lucky socks? Special pillow? Video game console?
